1.5"H, 9.25" Dia.; Limoges Porcelain, Gold
The Michael Aram Goldsmith Collection is an homage to the simple beauty of the metal forger's craft. Hammertone techniques have been a cornerstone in jewelry and metal crafting for millennia, and each mark bears silent testament to the skill of the craftsman. The Goldsmith Collection of fine porcelain strives to capture the random and organic feeling of this age old process. The porcelain is also designed to integrate perfectly with any of Michael’s other dinnerware patterns. The unified body shapes used in all of the motifs make mixing and matching the patterns a seamless proposition.
"I have always been mesmerized by the craft of hand forging and how a cold hard piece of metal can be transformed in shape. It is romantic and almost magical to me how quick gestures and seemingly random strikes of a hammer become frozen in time, creating a texture that is both spontaneous and ageless."
